    ROBERTO ORCI IS REMOVED FROM STAR TREK 3?

    2016 marks Star Trek series’ 50-year of inception and what is more appropriate is to make the third Star Trek movie. But there are some problems. J.J. Abrams, the director who helmed the 2009’s reboot and last year’s sequel Into Darkness, has gone off into another galaxy. This eventually led to the appointment of screenwriter Roberto Orci to replace Abrams. However, there were also other concerns, considering Orci has never directed a movie before. With just months to go before the production begins, report is now circulating that Roberto Orci will not be the movie’s director. What are the reasons?


    Deadline and ScreenRant are reporting that Roberto Orci has stepped off as the threequel director, but will still serve on the producer seat for the project. While there was no official reason given, rumours emerged that it was due to his script. The execs at Paramount were not entirely happy with his script, which Orci has been developing with Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne. Devin Faraci from BadAss Digest claimed that “…my sources tell me that the script Orci was working on saw the Enterprise, the Vulcans and a new alien race competing to get a time travel device. The Vulcans want to go back and stop the destruction of their planet, and the time travel schtick is what would allow Chris Pine and William Shatner to share the screen.”

    So far, this reason is non-official, and I repeat, is just a rumur at this point. It seems to me that the rumoured plot is somewhat related and similar to one established in the 2009’s reboot. In case you have forgotten, the Vulcans lost their planet, after Nero, a Romulan rebel injected the red matter that triggered a black hole. We also see Chris Pine’s younger Captain Kirk met with the older Spock Prime (Leonard Nimoy), when the former was deserted by the young Spock in attempted mutiny.

    As you can see, the alleged plot as claimed by Faraci is at least non-sensical as it seems strange that Paramount would even consider a reboot of the already rebooted storyline. Besides, it does not seem to be in line with Orci’s original desire to do something original. I think we shall just wait for the official confirmation on the nature of Orci’s resignation (or dismissal). The cast from the rebooted films are expected to reprise their roles, with the actions and finale are set in deep space.

    With Orci beaming out, the search for the contenders immediately begin. Top on the list is Edgar Wright, who departed Ant-Man earlier this year.
